    Allium ampeloprasum.

    Excellent, quick maturing summer leek. Blue-green color with beautiful broad leaves. These leeks are known in England for their speed, as they can be sown in March and harvested in August. A great variety for organic farmers and nearly lost from the trade when hybrid leek seed arrived. It is just as good, if not better than the hybrids in every way. The main reason for hybrid leeks is the money that the corporation can make by charging more for the seed. Not a traditional winter leek but it can overwinter fine in our part of Oregon.

  • Leek, Verdonnet

    Leek, Verdonnet (Organic)

    Allium ampeloprasum.

    Our best leek if you want beautiful tall white stalks from the fall through winter. Of the Swiss giant type, Verdonnet is a landrace variety that has been improved by a Swiss farmer/breeder. Swiss giants are typically great summer leeks, but these large, bright-green tasty leeks stand all winter and into the spring. A very tall shafted leek good for hilling or trenching to blanch the stalk. A variety given to us by the Irish Seed Savers Association.
